    Journal: long story
    -------------------------------------------
    Mood: doubtful
      
    My last few posts are the beginning of a story that has reached about the length of a novel before I wisely strangled it to an end; but I have no idea whether anybody except a few kids would fing it entertaining and I am being a bit slow about posting its successive chapters. Any comments, I really want to know what folk think of the actual storytelling style, and also the idea of writing a bit of fantastical history, straightforwardly, instead of with dramatic unity and a tight curly plot? It's fun to write but I suppose unpublishable - which does not necessarily mean unreadable - and that's the atmosphere of trepidation in which I'm posting some of the chapters. Got one nice comment so far, thank you!

    Re: 'paint'

    I don't pay attention to accents for haiku. I pay attention to the dictionary. If I'm ever unsure about how many syllables a word has (though I can figure it out myself easily enough most times), I just look it up.

    And, even though I do usually stick with the 5-7-5 form, that's not necessary. You can have /fewer/ syllables if you want (though not more, unless you decide to write a tanka, which is 5-7-5-7-7). The shortest haiku I ever wrote was this:

    'heavy snow -
    a fir tree
    breaks.'

    That may or may not qualify as one to some, but I still stand by that as a haiku.

    Regarding 'pathetic June', I wrote it because it /is/ cold where I am, despite it being June. So far the warm days we've had I can count on one hand. It's like we jumped from spring to autumn; the weather is being stupid.

    So, basically, that poem was me grumping about it being bitterly cold when it should be uncomfortably warm. The upside is that I can actually sleep under my blanket at night, though.

    thanks for the comment. it's a transitional piece between two muses and to understand would take alot of backround information i can't provide. i'm glad you enjoyed it. (resolution of an accident.)

    Good to get your message as well.
    You needent spent any time on my page.. I havent been writing for some time now.
    Can one forget how to write? I may have done so....or am just dormant.
    I am glad to hear your spirit soars...I hope the rest of you will follow the spirit's example.

    I love your sky haiku, by the way. An excellent theme....so much happens beneath the sky, yet each vignette is as priceless as the next. Its all a wonder....and good fodder for the poetic.
    Im happy to read your writings. Thank you for posting. :)

    Gah, I've been so distracted with trying to meet with 100% reciprocated that I haven't taken the time to respond to my Thanks! I'm very glad that I offered you such satisfaction, really. I know how rad it feels to see that notification that someone treasure a write so much they stash it away.
    I hope you're well, and I hope you're writing; one or the other would do.

    hello there kind sir,

    firstly, thank you for the fav and your very nice comment. a week can go by with many an observation it seems. (smile.) that one there was a 'i can't seem to write anymore' write. a compilation of thoughts and journal doodles when words couldn't be found.

    secondly, regarding birds. sheesh, i talk to them on most days. many of them are curious enough to banter back and forth. they do bring a smile to my face and joy to my heart. they fill it up, kinda like the sun does each morning. it's the little things that mean so much.

    ps...i love that your kinds painted murals on the walls. i think that is beautiful indeed!
